A few weeks back I was able to stop into the NY store and even more than the selection of shirts I was really impressed by their tie selection. Knits, grenadine, wool. Some really great stuff.

Also just got these in the mail:

FWIW - the medium Vintage Ivy Chambray fits almost exactly like the NY Slim I usually wear.

I tried the Chambray on yesterday too, but didn't love the fabric and the collar and the fit, so passed. Really wanted to leave the store with something, but guess I am waiting for the OCBD.

Got a postcard from Kamakura. It's touches like this that push them above and beyond.

I like the fabric and fit, but I agree about the collar as it is much too short.

I wear a 15.75 as well, and the medium vintage shirt was considerably smaller in the chest and the shoulders for me. Even tried on both shirts after each other, and noticed a remarkable difference.

Yes that was what I found too regarding the collar. The arms were too long for me in the medium and the waist was a little too wide.

I went to Kamakura friday night. Got fitted up by a very nice guy named Jay.

As for the shirts they drape perfectly on my. They look much better than the Brook ESF shirts I have. Attached are pictures of the fit on me. This is obviously pre first wash but the instore shirts you can try on have been previously washed and the drape and feel is great on those. All I can say is if BB ESF shirts were your staple shirt (as it was mine) def give Kamakura a try.

Pictured is a 15 - 32.33 in a Tokyo Slim. For reference I am 5'8" 145lb

That's odd. I just measured my medium chambray and one of my oxfords and the P2P on both was 22". Strange.

Not for me, about an inch difference in the chest. I returned mine.

Anyone that has one of the linen shirts care to comment on sizing compared to NY slim fit? I'm a 41/16 in the NY SF and get 1 inch off the sleeves , but seems like i'll need a large for the sleeve length, but the neck seems awfully big on the large. If anyone knows if the measurements are accurate would be appreciated.

Funny you should mention it...I am going in very soon (tomorrow or Sunday) to see and try on those linen shirts.  I will report back (though I don't wear the NY slim.)

Thanks that would be good. Just let me know what fit you normally wear and i'll adjust to suit myself.

I bought a tie from them, pretty decent, it looks like I should try out their shirts...

Yeah, that is about as good as it gets. No need for MTM, you found your one stop shirt source.
